Eric Wallis

Eric Lionel Wallis, a faithful member of Eryri Harriers for many years, passed away on the 2nd of March aged 73. Those of us old enough to remember will know that Eric came up with the original idea and route for the Snowdonia Marathon. Eric’s wife Denise was also an Eryri member and our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.

His funeral will be held at 1.00pm on Monday 10th March at Llanfihangel Tre y Beirdd, Capel Coch, Anglesey. Anyone wishing to celebrate his life is invited to make a donation to the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team.

 

Bu farw Eric Lionel Wallis cyn aelod ffyddlon o Glwb Rhedwyr Eryri yn 73 oed ar yr 2 Fawrth. Bydd y rhai ohonym sydd ddigon hen yn cofio mai gan Eric y daeth y syniad gwreiddiol am râs a chwrs Marathon Eryri.

 Bydd angladd Eric yn cael ei gynnal yn Llanfihangel Tre y Beirdd, Capel Coch, Ynys Mon am 1.00yp ar y 10

Fawrth

 ‘Roedd Denise gwraig Eric yn aelod o glwb Eryri hefyd, ac yn sicr mae ein teimladau gyda hi a’r teulu yn eu colled. Gwahoddir cyfraniadau i Dim Achub Mynydd Llanberis i dathlu bywyd Eric.

Athlete study

Hello I’m a psychology student at UCLAN. I’m currently doing my dissertation and was wondering if any of your athlete’s would like to take part. I’m researching coach-athlete attachment type and the effects this has on eating psychopathology. I’m looking to see if there is a correlation between negative attachment types (anxious and avoidant) and eating psychopathology. I’m looking for athletes that compete at University 1st team level or other (regional, national, international, county, club) and was hoping you may have some athletes who would want to take part.

If you’re interested please email me back and I can send relevant information to take part in this research.

Regards, Joe.

 

PS: This requires athletes to complete an online questionnaire only, that should take no longer than 5-10 minutes. Also athletes have to be 18+ just for this particular study.

I know this can be a bit of a nuisance but if you or your athletes take part I’d appreciate this a lot. The whole participant process is quick and simple and should hopefully be beneficially! This research will also be used in a wider study later which is looking at the very important area that is athlete’s and eating disorders. I’d imagine this would be of interest to a lot of coaches and athletes.

Found GPS device near Llanberis

 

My wife and I walked to the summit of Snowdon on Saturday this weekend gone and found on the road Pen-y-pass side of Llanberis a GPS device in good order and barely marked. From its contents we guess it belongs to either a runner, keen walker or cyclist very local to Llanberis, but there is no name or home detail within this device. Someone will want it back, the Caernarfon Police are aware, Mountain Rescue have looked within the device to try to locate the owner to no avail, the manufacturer has been contacted in case it’s registered with them and we called in at two of the local locations within it to no avail.

Could you please ask your members if they know of someone who has lost one this weekend?  The police have my details and I will only release it to someone who knows the device details and it’s contents for obvious reasons.

Sincere thanks. This is a good piece of kit.

Kind regards.
